Media

3pointsport has always been in the media, whether under this banner or elsewhere.

Of note, we are a non-commercial, not-for-profit, editorial, and independent media/photo site. We report the news for the love of the game and to promote soccer, and any other off-the-trail sports in the San Francisco Bay Area. We contribute material to other sites for no fee, and only to give the sport the best coverage possible in the local area for only an acknowledgement/credit and a link to the posted article.

3pointsport, or Nap Badillo, has been posted elsewhere. While this site prefers to report the news and post our own material here, we will also collaborate with other sites to promote the game in the Bay Area.

The following are examples of published/credited external works. This list is ongoing.

2022 Update:

The Beautiful Blog at sfgate.com is now at soccerbayarea.com and the highlights are here. Items are contributed photos.  Please note only some articles have migrated from the old spot to the new and will be updated.

These Women’s World Cup players have Bay Area roots (photo 3)

(9/27/2010) – article by Tom Fitzgerald. Douglas Zimmerman asked for a photo of the match since I was there as a supporter with the San Jose Ultras, and I submitted two from the championship match. This was given for the love of the game. I have seen the game from both sides of the pitch, as a supporter/fan and as a press photographer. This was the unofficial debut, although I had a previous stint with the Bay Soccer from 2008 to 2009 covering the San Jose Earthquakes.

Other FootySF collaborations include the San Francisco chapter of Street Soccer USA and other promotions around the San Francisco Bay Area (San Jose Earthquakes 2015 March to Soccer tour promoting the opening of their stadium).

Quakesfan.com (2015-2016 for the San Jose Earthquakes, 2015 to present for various assignments) – now called kairostic.com the assignment was similar to FootySF except with a focus on the San Jose Earthquakes or US Soccer.
